OUR AIMS

BDS aims to provide a range of opportunities for people to discover more about wild deer. We want to encourage an understanding and appreciation of deer and their place within our natural landscape.

Where deer and humans come into conflict we aim to help provide the best advice to ensure deer are managed in a humane and sustainable way.

In addition, we work to raise the public’s awareness about deer including respecting their need for a safe, peaceful and sustainable environment.

Deer Collisions Warning - Fallow deer at dawn By Giedriius

Warning of an increased risk of deer collisions as clocks go back

National Highways and the British Deer Society are warning drivers to be extra vigilant for deer on or near roads after the clocks go back this weekend.

There is a substantial increase in deer vehicle collisions from October to December. Poorer driving conditions and fewer hours of daylight, coupled with the annual breeding season (the rut) for red, sika & fallow deer make this a high-risk time of year.
